Had a nice first QSO on Ukube-1 with Rick W2JAZ/3, It was the first time I
operated on the UKube-1 transponder! I got to say the transponder is quite
stable compared to Funcube-1's probably due to it being a 3U cubesat. Are
qso was only interuppted once by the satellites CW telemetry decensing the
uplink of transponder, but other than that it works very well! During our
QSO we were the only ones on the bird and the signal on the meter was a
solid 57. Thanks for the QSO Rick W2JAZ and see on FD and more people
should get on and work this new bird!
